there are only two entities in washington that lower approval raidings than george w. bush congress and the media so what are you going to do about it. and they continued to make things worse for themselves and for journalism with things like this. this is not the first time. this happened when congress woman gabrielle giffords was shot. everybody goes to the tea party website to see if there is a connection. i don't know any tea party member whose first and foremost passion is about the second amendment. the fact that they were looking for some connection immediately really is oh h offensive. >> mike: it would be like taking brian ross' name and saying we know there was a brian ross arrested for child molesting in upstate new york. >> oops, sore. >> karch: the wron sorry, wronn ross. >> is it more important to be right than it is to be first? >> i was the press secretary when the virginia tech shooting happened. when a crisis breaks, first reports are almost always wrong. hold back. wait a minute and let's see what the facts are. be rapid response even from a campaign side on the other side of t
tag of $12.3 billion. the former press secretary to george w. bush has an op ed piece in "the wall street journal." george w. bush writes himself -- extending the fight beyond aids. 20,000 delegates are gathering in washington for the 2012 international aids conference. gains in aids treatment are remarkable and are continuing. he says there is more to be done in places like africa. other diseases must also be dealt with. he says of his heart wrenching to save a woman from aids only to watch her die from other diseases. the question for you this morning is whether or not you think u.s. banks should be nationalized inspired to ask this by an office in the new york times today. it says wall street is too big to regulate. caller: thank you for taking my call. and the bank should not be nationalized, however, the federal reserve needs to be ended, and factional reserve lending should be ended. the bank should only lend money that they have, and that would actually solve the problem. the creation of money should go back through congress to create the money supply, and that would end a l

to george w. bush, they decided they lost because blue collar white voters in places like west virginia, you know, throughout, made inroads in kentucky, tennessee, arkansas, missouri, those voters were turning on the democratic party because of guns and what you've seen over the last decade has been in polling, there has been a real dramatic rise in terms of how important blue collar white voters think the issue of gun ownership is to them. the democrats have to make a choice -- >> i understand the demographics on that but howard, i'm going to stop calling him your boss. >> he is my boss. >> you're a pro in your own right. he said when was the last time you saw a deer in a flack jacket. these are high capacity magazines we can't even get banned after gabby giffords was shot. we know james holmes had a se semiautomatic weapon that went out on him in the middle of the shooting. if it had been working, many more people would have been killed and injured. the fact the internet is an unregulated gray area and nobody is doing anything incrementally to stop what he rightfully termed as a crime prob
the finger at obama followed by congress, wall street and last former president george w. bush. the romney campaign hopes to bounce on this and voter angs. listen to what he told me earlier today. >> i think the president made an error coming into office and deciding that the economy would take care of itself. he focused his energy on liberal plans he and his friends have been working on a at a time we should have been focused on getting the economy going and only encouraged job creation. most of the measures the president pursued hurt job creation. as a result we are still suffering. >> liberal plans blocking jobs and the economy. the country is at a crossroads. one leads us to european style government. the other leads to economic freedom. which road is america going to choose? new york university professor and long-time democratic strategist and friend robert schrum. and former house majority leader dick armey, co-chairman of freedom works. i thought the poll was really important sending a message that america is, indeed, at the crossroads. but people are going to vote for a ri
to believe this is beneath contempt, yet it did undermine his candidacy and helped reelect george w. bush. i don't think barack obama will make that mistake, he understands the ultimate goal is winning campaigns and getting reletting, that's the best way to push his agenda forward and they are doing that. host: the gospel according to the fix and your blog, entitled the fix, where did you come up with that? guest: i recently did a book signing and someone asked me that question and i said it was a compromise in a lot of ways. first of all, any time you try to name any political blog at this point that has campaign or 2012 or two on it's already taken. number two, we did this in '05 and the goal was, the conceit of the fix, the blog, was are there enough people who are political addicts and that's kind of where we got the fix from, this would be your fiction, if you were a political junkie and you loved the granular politics, if you wanted to talk about in the book i say my fest of a political junkie is if at this point in the 2012 campaign, if i mention the 2016 handicapping for president,

. >> stephanie: speaking of george w. bush guess who will be skipping the convention in tampa. >> george w. bush. >> i got -- >> stephanie: his spokesman says he supports governor romney which is probably why he's staying away. scat. cnn survey found bush to be the only living president with a fayeable rating below 50%. [ wah wah ] >> that takes some doing. >> stephanie: yeah. okay. all right. [ ♪ "world news tonight" ♪ ] meanwhile, president obama and the -- warned mitt romney would be squeezing more money out of seniors by turning medicare into a voucher program. romney accused obama of putting his needs against those -- putting his needs above those of the nation. what? huh? i don't understand most of romney's attack. what? president broadened his attack on support for the house plan that would change medicare from a fee for service program into one where future returns -- helpful vouchers. >> here's $20. go cure your cancer. >> caught rise your -- cauterize your wounds with coupons. >> stephanie: is that
served with: president ford, president carter, president reagan, president george h.w. bush, president clinton, president george w. bush. somehow we have a different standard for president obama. do they really want to establish this as being the standard? do they not think that someday there may be a republican president and know that that's the standard that they want? it would happen there. during the past five presidential election years, senate democrats have never denied an up-or-down vote to any circuit court nominee of a republican president who received bipartisan support in the judiciary committee. that's 20 years, five presidential election years. during the last 20 years only four circuit nominees reported the bipartisan support have been denied an up-or-down vote by the senate. all four were nominated by president clinton and blocked by senate republicans. this entire year the senate has yet to vote on a single circuit court nominee who was nominated by president obama this year. since 1980, the only presidential election year in which there were no circuit nominees confir
. george w. bush couldn't control september 11th, that fund financially reshaped his presidency one year into it. the things happen, i think, that these things, the tragedy in colorado, they happen within a political context, and i think politicians have to react to that. you saw both barack obama and mitt romney come out and speak on friday. barack obama is headed to colorado today. this doesn't mean either of them are politicizing this event. what it means is that at times of national crisis or at times of national tragedy we look for our leaders to be leaders and they need to step town that. if they don't step up to it can hurt them in the long run. the impression made in comoments in moments like this, when everyone is paying attention to a single story, when they are those impressions and perceptions can haas well beyond the story. host: dan writes there's a pattern or protocol. guest: sadly, there is. we've had a number of events at this point. i thought barack obama and i don't say this because he meant to do himself political good but i think barack obama did himself political
" accident, whether bill clinton after oklahoma city, george w. bush standing on the pile of rubble after 9/11, only a president can do what barack obama did and that is talk to those affected by such unspeakable tragedy and bring at least a little bit of comfort. >> yeah. i couldn't agree more. i think in terms of the gun control debate, steve rattner, one of the arguments mayor bloomberg has, is that -- and joe's point is well taken, it's always right after these events that everyone seizes the moment to jump on the debate. but the argument bloomberg has is that obama hasn't had this debate, that he has not taken this on. if not now, when? >> well, it's not an issue at the moment, but look, i agree with joe that there is a period of mourning, if you will, where it's probably not exactly the right time. i agree with joe and others who are saying it's not just a gun problem, it's a social problem, problem of identifying in the young kids those that may be problematic. there are 150 million guns out there, but i don't for the life of me understand what legitimate purpose anyone has for carry
to say you know, george w. bush had when he launched the search and where his most inner circle everyone except him would -- it but i don't think he will. i think the only way the narrative changes is if the fall of assad does not happen and then what you do see is not 20,000 people dead but 100,000 people dead. i think every 10,000 increments of slaughter you might say diminishes that narrative. so i don't know where that line is where suddenly that is not a narrative that you want to start out any more. but i suspect you know, somewhere between 10,200,000 people today. so wherever that line is, think that is where you are no longer going to use it. now you could still use the argument and you hear that argument more often on the republican side which is just sort of let them all slaughter each other, and without a great consideration of the strategic calculations in the middle east because it's sort of like the middle east, just go away. so, i think that is also a pretty powerful again, i would emphasize -- emphasize if you had to write now put your finger on something that would chang
